SECTION 30-8-4

   § 30-8-4  Rhode Island star. –

The Rhode Island star may be awarded, in the name of the governor, to each

person who, while a commissioned officer, warrant officer, or enlisted person

of the armed forces of the United States, including the reserve components

thereof, or of the Rhode Island national guard, while on active state or

federal service, distinguishes himself or herself conspicuously by

exceptionally meritorious service to the state or federal government in a duty

of responsibility. No more than one Rhode Island star shall be awarded to any

one person, but for each succeeding service, sufficient to justify the award of
